Health & Wellness Program

Our corporate clients now have the opportunity for Workwear Direct to fund or part fund a health and wellness program for its employees which would be managed by Utility Creative.

Utility Creative (UC) has more than two decades’ experience in delivering e-solutions in the mental health and wellbeing industry. As leaders in the field of mental health screening and promotion, UC has provided interactive and engaging online tools for users for assessment information, support, and solutions for mental health, wellbeing and shift work related sleep issues. UC programs help reduce strain on essential services by developing and creating prevention-style interventions that are measurable.

With the growing use of technology, UC has followed the shift to a major focus on digital platforms, namely via smartphone Applications to deliver their health and wellbeing solutions. To date, UC has designed and developed health solutions for perinatal mental health and wellbeing including ‘iCOPE’, ‘Baby Coming You Ready?’, and ‘equipt’. Equipt is a wellbeing application that was originally developed by UC for the Victoria Police/The Police Association Victoria. Based on the success of equipt in Victoria, equipt has since been rolled out to all Australian, New Zealand and Canadian jurisdictions. To date there has been over 20,000 downloads and monthly user statistics indicate consistent ongoing use of equipt. In September 2019, an average of 1,400 users completed over 4,500 sessions (average session duration 1 min 30 secs) with a return rate of 84%.

An ongoing initiative managed by UC with an NSW energy provider over the past five years highlights the effectiveness of this approach. Through the collaboration, the cost associated with health-related days off has reduced by $1,000,000 between 2014 to 2018. It is important to note that these results were possible despite the clients employee count reducing by 40% during this time.
